Wellbeing 101:Stress Management, Relationship, Happiness & Writing Skills for Tweens/Teens


The ability to cope with life’s stress, navigate relationships, and meet personal goals can be vital to both happiness and success in life. Many people have said, “There should be a class for this in school,” and now there is! 

This course is designed to help students to learn and practice the basics for healthy coping and communication while developing writing skills at the same time. This means not only traditional goal-setting and self-care, but skills and habits that have been found by research to promote increased levels of happiness and life satisfaction for the decades to come, while learning how to be better writers at the same time. Taught by an experienced teacher who has a master’s degree in Counseling, a doctorate in Psychology, and has written a book on the subject that has been translated into multiple languages, this course can help students to build knowledge and habits to increase their happiness and productivity for life. It will focus on:


  • Research-Based Happiness Skills
  • Coping Skills Coaching
  • Essay-Writing Skills
  • Creative Writing Skills
  • Emotional Self-Care
  • Goal-Setting
  • Relationship and Communication Skills
  • Building Habits of All Types, and more!

This is a perfect age for students to start building awareness in this area and practicing these skills in a supportive environment with a helpful and knowledgeable guide, and for those who want to practice their writing skills. For older students who are interested, the older version of this class would be a good fit, as well as the Student Leadership Council, as many of these skills are covered and practiced in those courses as well.
